UrduScript – Roman Urdu Takes Excuses Out of Programming

UrduScript - Urdu's Answer to Programming

There should be no excuse to learning. We find so many when it comes to doing something challenging. There are times when we genuinely face difficulties in understanding something. Sometimes, the nuances of a programming language coupled with the technicality of the information make a vexing combination. So here we are with the UrduScript.

What is UrduScript?

UrduScript is a new programming language. The purpose of this language is to make it easy for the upcoming programmers to make programming easy. The use of simple words of Urdu takes out a more structured and formalized approach towards programming. This way, the new developers can form foundation concepts of coding.


Transpile translates the programmed UrduScript into JavaScript. Programmers can use it to their advantage for programming in UnderScore, React, and jQuery as well.

Who Should Use UrduScript?

Experienced programmers who have spent years programming may not find this language attractive. However, programmers who are just starting their career will find it very useful. The language uses variable analogies for making life easy for the new programmers.

Here is Why the Maker of UrduScript Did Not Use Pure Urdu?

  • The Persian alphabets do not come as default in the keyboard.
  • The creator believes the youth is catching up this trend more quickly.
  • It would become difficult to adapt to a style of programming from right to left. (Since we are more used to writing and reading from left to right in English and even in programming).
  • The default font used in Urdu is non-Nastaliq, making it hard for programmers to read.

Who Made UrduScript?
